Swamp Thing v1 #14, 1975 - Driven to fear, a small community turns violently toward a trio of mutated children. Nestor Redondo does his best work yet on the series, opening with an incredible two page spread of the Swamp Thing beset by villagers. The scene is logically divided into two components that come together to form a cohesive whole. The artist maintains an extraordinary level of detail throughout the book. Some of the most beautifully illustrated pages include the mutant's past history (told within borderless, dream-like panels) and the spectacular full page splash of an enormous ant (see interior page below). This is number 4 of 13 Swamp Thing issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Redondo or Swamp Thing issues.
